Track & Predict The Path Of Satellites Live Using Gpredict [Windows]

I have to admit that I’m a sucker for cool, high-tech displays that constantly update with interesting data in real-time.

How To Enjoy Video Game Soundtracks While You Work

I’ve recently been enjoying the new Guild Wars 2 MMORPG, with its fantastic graphics, overdue revision of the mechanics of RPG combat, thrilling tasks, quests and dungeons and of course the amazing soundtrack by the unrealistically talented Jeremy Soule (once described as the “John Williams of video game music”).
